Chinese Hacked Hillary's Email Server

Two sources informed The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) that a Washington, D.C., area firm received a "courtesy copy" of Clinton's emails that was created by a code embedded in the server.

China allegedly had unimpeded access to all of Hillary Clinton's communications through her private server when she was the Secretary of State, after planting a malware that copied emails in real time, a new report claims. Actually, a very big story. After airing a clip in which retiring Utah Senator Orrin Hatch claimed that had Ms. Clinton won the 2016 general election, she would have gotten away with much more than President Donald Trump does.

Trump provided no details about the alleged hacking, but his tweets came shortly after the online publication of a story by the Daily Caller asserting that a Chinese-owned company operating in the Washington area hacked Clinton's private server while she was secretary of state and obtained almost all her emails.

'Next move better be by the FBI & DOJ or, after all of their other missteps (Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr, FISA, Dirty Dossier etc.), their credibility will be forever gone!' the President continued, referring to a list of his familiar grievances with DOJ.

Trump didn't specify the source for his claim.

China denied the report in a statement to Reuters, and said it "firmly oppose [s]" cyberattacks and the theft of state secrets.

Union minister Jitendra Singh said the first unmanned flight of the programme is likely within 30 months, according to IANS . "Two unmanned Gaganyaan missions will be undertaken prior to sending humans to space", ISRO chief K Sivan told reporters.

There has been speculation that the president is taking a more hardline stance against China in an effort to curtail its growing power in the world.

Trump tweeted a few hours earlier in another apparent reference the story.

"This isn't the first time we've heard similar kinds of allegations", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a daily news briefing.

US intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation was behind a campaign to influence the 2016 election and was responsible for the hacking of emails of the Democratic National Committee as well as Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta.

Two ICIG officials, investigator Frank Ruckner and attorney Janette McMillan, repeatedly warned Federal Bureau of Investigation officials of the Chinese intrusion during several meetings, according to the Daily Caller, citing a "former intelligence officer with expertise in cybersecurity issues who was briefed on the matter".

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating the Kremlin's role in the election and whether there was any collusion between it and Trump's campaign.
